We checked in late, experiencing mechanical problems with my motorcycle. The desk clerk was very helpful in recommending a local shop and did his best to situate us in a room where we could keep an eye on the bikes, though there were no ground floor rooms available. The room was clean and comfortable. We were so focused on getting... More

Checked into this hotel on Aug 6th, 2014. We were placed in room 135. The room itself was very dated, and the shower floor was disgusting with dirt and mold (have a pix to post if I have the option to post after this review). About 12:30 am, a group of young thugs arrived in an extremely loud car, with... More

First room was pretty hot, but they moved us with no problem. Rooms were spacious and clean. Internet was not very good at all. Got an "alright" connection in the first room (close to office), NO connection in the next room, but was able to get a great connection from the Motel next door.

So we made this stop on our trip across country. We called ahead and got a slightly discounted price for doing a reservation. The guy that worked the office was extremely nice and helpful. I wasn't expecting much from this place, but it was better than expected. Our room was very clean, with very clean floors. I see some bad... More

I hadn't even checked in yet when the problems started. The young man at reception wouldn't honor the online advertised price for a single, non smoking room even when I showed him a printout of the ad. However, being tired from a long day on the road I told the man I would take the room in spite of the... More

We should have ran when we walked in the lobby and noticed the unpleasant odor but it was 11:30 pm and we'd been driving all day and he girl at the front desk was very friendly so I thought I could overlook it. The room smelled worse...I had to spray cologne to make it tolerable. The sheets were obviously soiled... More

Stayed here 3rd week of June 2013.
